Not Just Good China

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:45:00 AM in Mottahedeh (32)

Whisper-thin and incredibly delicate, fine china dishes instantly transform a table into a beautiful and elegant landscape.

But even though Mottahedeh’s patterns reflect a grand tradition in style, proportion and elegance coupled with the licensing programs for authorized reproductions with major museums worldwide, it kept up with time and the increasing pressure of modern world.

Angels in Ne'Qwa

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Ne'Qwa (32)

They are usually depicted as chubby little babies with wings, but angels are a lot more than that. They are believed to be spiritual beings lovingly sent to us from above to watch over us, to deliver a message, to guard and protect us from danger, and sometimes do battle with other spiritual beings on our behalf. 
Regardless, it cannot be denied that the image of an angel or angels bring joyful announcements and of gleeful feeling as they are usually associated with the announcement of the birth of Jesus.  Much like the feeling replicated by their image, Dona Gelsinger, a resident artist of Ne’Qwa, intricately hand-painted on the inside of glass a glorious angel sharing the light of Christmas with the world.
Indeed, one of the easiest things to do in one’s life is to be in touch with an Angel! But how do you see one? Visit Schiffman’s at Friendly Center to have one for yourself.

The Unique Balinese Art of John Hardy

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:30:00 AM in John Hardy (41)

John Hardy’s Cinta collection reflects the signature’s relentless quest to capture the mystical and unique Balinese art and marry it to European elegance. It is not conscious of precious stones set in its jewelry line; or does it boast of the price apparent in its material of platinum, gold, and sterling. Rather, this collection, as with other John Hardy collections, focuses on the art. Cinta is Indonesian for “love,” and rightly so the jewelry items evoke passion and romance, even a sensual touch is lightly expressed. Its pink sapphires and diamonds are framed by two Nagas, confident and quiet in their grandeur. Each piece is handcrafted with no two pieces exactly the same. The Cinta collection is consistent with John Hardy’s unique line of jewelry items crafted in the mystic and elaborate culture of Balinese art.
John Hardy is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Your Diamond is Priceless if…

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Hearts on Fire (32)

Here are some reasons why your diamond can be considered priceless. First, it is rare and unique. If not rare, at least it’s only among a few other diamonds selected, chiseled, refined and polished from one tenth of the world’s best diamond mines. This gives your diamond the best clarity and unblemished surface possible. Second, it is crafted by a company committed to the highest manufacturing benchmarks used in diamond making. It takes the most skilled diamond jeweler to make the most perfect diamond. In the hands of an amateur, even a perfectly formed raw diamond can lose its radiance. Third, it is cut and polished using a 100 times magnification that allows the jeweler to create precise cuts and leave no surface unpolished. If your diamond meets these requirements, it’s probably a Hearts On Fire diamond.
Hearts On Fire is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

The Salisbury Elegance

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Salisbury (32)

The translucent but strong characteristic of porcelain is the result of art perfection and fine craftsmanship that only a few artists exhibit. In fact, the rare skills of porcelain maker made this material one of the most prized items in the ancient world, particularly in China.

4 Factors to Consider When Matching Diamond with your Style

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Charles Krypell (45)

Signature diamonds like Charles Krypell offer a wide array of diamond jewelry in various designs that choosing what’s best for you can at times be tricky. Not if you know your style. You just need to think of four factors. First, consider the size. If you’re on the bold side, bigger stones can match your personality. On the other hand, smaller stones express a more subdued but elegant character. Second, the setting also counts. Solitary exudes confidence, while multiple stones suggest a more playful personality. Third, color can also set your character. White diamond is more traditional, while colored ones reflect a more contemporary or novel side. Fourth, you can also use the design to match your style. Elaborate finishes fit a more extrovert trait. On the other hand, simple designs like seamless linear bands are more ideal for women who want to keep things modest but sophisticated.

Baseball History

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)

One of the recent commissioned masterpieces by Waterford Crystal is the Fireman’s Helmet in honor of New York Yankee’s Mariano Rivera for the record of most saves in baseball history. Rivera completed the feat during a game against the Rays. Handcrafted in the tradition of Waterford Crystal craftsmanship, the Fireman’s Helmet started with the perfect mould using the ancient craft of mould making using beach and pear wood. The red hot molten crystal was then shaped through the Waterford’s traditional glassblowing technique using the skills of its craftsmen to reveal an unblemished elegant crystal helmet. The commissioned work went through quality check and hand engraving, showcasing the number “602” to mark Rivera’s record permanently in the masterpiece. Finally, the Fireman’s Helmet was cut and sculpted by master artists. The result is nothing short of an elegant artwork that is similarly revealed in other Waterford Crystal works.

Happy non-Holiday!

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:25 AM in Wellendorff (40)

The Holiday season now almost over, it’s time to hunker down to the banalities of everyday life. But expressing your love through gifts should not stop once the holidays are over; rather, it should extend throughout the year. In fact, surprising someone with luxury jewelry like Wellendorff in a non-occasion can even be more memorable and elicit an honest emotional fulfillment. It’s not the luxury signature’s spinning rings or its magnificent yellow gold and platinum line of necklaces that your loved one will remember (although she’ll surely appreciate the glamorous style), but the fact that you’re thinking of her even in ordinary days. Your love is timeless, after all, and what a better way to prove this than give her your commitment in the form of a Wellendorff jewelry even if the occasion doesn’t call for it.

Use the votives to decorate pathways, provide accent to center and coffee tables, or lighten up a dark corner. They’re also perfect as aroma instruments in the bathroom.

Nothing beats the original

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

If it doesn’t say it’s Victorinox, it’s not the Original Swiss Army knife. The original red pocket knife has become an icon for outdoor adventure for both leisure and professional explorers. The idea to combine an all-purpose small knife with a can opener, screwdriver, bottle opener, wire stripper, and reamer gave birth to modern time’s biggest small wonder and spawned more versions that feature more implements. Not the least, copycats flooded the market trying but failing to emulate the durability and seamless functionality of this red reliable piece of workmanship. Today, the Original Swiss Army knife is used in as varied environments as in travel tours, scientific explorations, army campaigns, and camping. In the age when tech gadgets come and go as day and night, it feels good to have an original gadget that stands the measure of time.

The set exhibits the brand’s heritage of sterling silver craftsmanship, notably the unblemished and durability of a Boardman Silversmiths piece. The serving tray is gleaming in pride, mirroring the unmistakable luxury of the brand. The tea pot lends genuine classical air; you won’t find a line that goes straight to its destination. No, the lines have to twist, turn and loop into curls to create an intricate work of art more than a utilitarian ware. A sterling silver candleholder tops off this collection, a blast of elegance that will likely elicit a second serving of tea from your friends.
